Notice Accounts – Approx 3 months
Using a Notice Account will generally, although not always, see an increased rate of interest compared to Instant Access Savings accounts.
Notice Savings Accounts usually come with notice periods of one, two, three and six months, with interest rates generally rising with the longer notice periods.
The savings accounts on this page show savings accounts which require three months notice.
With some Notice Accounts your money can still be withdrawn without notice but this can result in a penalty in the form of lost interest. Always check the terms and conditions of the account to confirm exactly when you can withdraw your savings and what the penalty might be.
Unless held as a Cash ISA (Individual Savings Account) or by a non tax payer, the interest will be subject to tax. For basic rate taxpayers this will be deducted at source with nothing further to pay, whereas higher rate tax payers will have to pay an additional amount.
Notice Accounts often come with an introductory bonus rate of interest, which when withdrawn, can make the account uncompetitive. Savers who open Notice Savings Accounts with bonus rates of interest should be prepared to shop around for alternative accounts when the bonus rate is withdrawn.
